Coffee Spotlight: Parisi Sunshine Sensation Blend

 

 

A beautiful blend of organic South American Arabica coffees. The mouthfeel is full, rich, buttery and balanced, with notes of chocolate and hazelnut.

 

 

About Parisi

It was our Sicilian grandmother, with the help of a moka pot and Italian espresso, who introduced us to the fine art of coffee. She instilled in us a deep sense of “coffee as a tasteful part of daily life.” It was always the pinnacle moment of every social occasion. It was treated with care and selected purposefully to be an ideal complement.

Years later, the growth of the local roasting movement awakened our fond memories of handcrafted coffee. We were inspired to pair our love of coffee with our long-standing passion for producing fine foods. It had always been our belief coffee played as important a role in the dining experience as it does in supporting the social conventions of our world.

We opened the Parisi Artisan Coffee roasting facility in 2006. Since inception, we have strived to source the highest quality specialty coffee. We have dedicated ourselves to perfecting roast profiles that maximize the natural essence in every bean. There is nothing automated or factory-like about what we do. It is and will always be a craftsman's venture.

Up until 2011, Parisi Coffee had only been available in quality Kansas City restaurants and grocery stores. We opened the first Parisi Café in Kansas City in 2011 to present the finished hand-brewed cup; our art we intended from our roasts. And like our roasting avocation, we work every day to achieve perfection in the craft.

Product Spotlight: Dreaming Cow Vanilla Agave New Zealand Style Artisan Yogurt

 

 

Vanilla Agave

Lightly sweetened with organic agave nectar.

Grade A Pasteurized Grass Based Whole Milk, Organic Amber Agave Nectar, Pure Vanilla Extract and Live Active Cultures: S.Thermophilus, L.Bulgaricus, L.Acidophilus and Bifidus.

 

 

We make a New Zealand style cream top yogurt fresh on our farm. The New Zealand influences comes from both the way we graze our cows year round and how we make our yogurt in the factory. We were fortunate enough to work with a small artisan producer in the South Island of New Zealand, and brought back the same clean cream top concept to our family's own grass-based dairy here in Georgia.

Our Cows are provided the unconfined bliss of endless year round pasture, long healthy lives free of added growth hormones, and plenty of exercise. We believe in responsible, biological agriculture based on a foundation of healthy and sustainable soil, and our yogurts are 100% all natural, non homogenized and minimally processed - exactly as yogurt was meant to be made and enjoyed!

Grass based dairy has also been shown to have higher levels of conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) as well as Vitamin A, Beta Carotene and Omega-3s.

About the company

We began with a vision for a plant-based food that would have all the qualities we relish in the best artisan dairy cheeses. As we believe the best part of eating is inviting everyone to the table for a convivial meal, these products had to entice the full range of food lovers, from those dedicated to a plant-based diet to others simply curious about a healthier lifestyle.

Today, Kite Hill represents much more than artisanal almond milk products. Kite Hill stands for the very best tasting alternative dairy products made with the simplest ingredients using traditional methods — from artisanal delicacies, nut milk yogurts, and cream cheese style spreads to entrées and even deserts.

Q&A:

Q: So what is Grlk?

A: Grlk is a creamy mixture with Lebanese roots, stemming back thousands of years. It is also commonly called, garlic sauce or the white fluffy stuff on your Middle Eastern combo plate.

Q: What are the ingredients of Grlk?

A: Just 5 simple ingredients: NON-GMO Canola Oil, Fresh Garlic, Organic Sea Salt, Organic Lemon Juice (not from concentrate), and purified water (just a cap full)

Q: How do I use it?

A: It can be used as a marinade for meats, sauté veggies, spread on a sandwich (instead of mayo or mustard), or you can just dip a chip or a spoon and eat it. Butter the outside of your sandwich and pan fry it and you have a tasty panini. IN the mood for a great salad? Take Grlk and add a little more oil to it, then whisk and you have a healthy alternative to Ranch, Caesar or Italian dressing. The uses are really limitless.

Q: How long does it last?

A: Grlk is best used by 6-8 weeks. While this product doesn't mold (garlic is antimicrobial), after about 8 weeks, it will slowly start to lose its flavor. A Best Used By date is stamped on every jar. But lets face it, you will empty the jar long before the stamped date.
